.....when everyone seems stricken by illness.
It started with DD4 having a streaming cold, then giving it to DH.
DD3 developed a fever and complained of feeling "not well". Nothing more specific, but she was definitely not well.
Then I had the "not wellness" too, and last night DD2 emailed to say she has got a vile cold/tonsillitis. And one of her beloved reptile pets has just died, after months of expensive veterinary treatment.
DD1 and Mr DoomHamster both seem fine at the moment, and long may it continue !
We have escaped the projected heavy snowfall completely, with torrential rain instead. If it had been snow, it would have been inches thick............
